I’m not Jewish, but is it appropriate to light that thing today? I thought they have a specific ritual to all that.

it is not even close to Hanukkah...

Obama joked that everyone needs to be "careful that your kids don't start thinking Hanukkah lasts 20 nights instead of eight.

Har har har! That's zer0 for 'ya, always crackin' a joke! In this case, poking fun at his own flippin-the-bird to Jews on not observing the holiday on the proper date of said Jewish holiday.

If he’s “celebrating” Hannukah tonight, he’ll be stabbing the Jews in the back tomorrow.

That’s the way Barry works. Comes down to FL to tout jobs from a “bullet train” the day before he destroys the space program. Talks about a jobs bill while at the same time destroying small businesses in other meetings. It’s what he does and the way he does it.

Barry’s the King of Misdirection. I never thought I’d say this, but he makes Clinton look honest. A real serpent’s tongue, he’s got.

Just post the article. The posting page software will tell you what you need to do.

FWIW, I know from experience that AP articles need to be excerpted to 300 words or less.

He’s probably planning on doing something really rotten to Israel in the next few days. It’s a pattern with him - have some pretty speech or ceremony for some group or such, and then stab them in the back. The MSM doesn’t care.

They just, like AP, carry pretty pictures and soundbites of the part they like and bury the rotten things O does.

Maybe Gingrich is scoring too many points with Jewish voters and Zero’s support is vaporizing.

Hanukkah is not til the 20th. We’ll have to see how many Jews fall for this. Talk about being tokenized.

He thinks everyone but him is stupid.

Insulting a religion like Judaism makes him look better in the eyes of his Muslim brothers. He’s insulted Christianity enough!

Evil incarnate!

lit the Menorah as if it were a birthday cake

judging by the length of the candles in the picture, i would also guess he used the left most candle, from our vantage, to light the rest

(the one in the middle is the only one supposed to be used to light the others... it is forbidden to do otherwise)

he is soooooo supah smaht

Aside from being the wrong day, what’s wrong with him lighting all of the candles?

Look at this man’s eyes and tell me they aren’t the most evil looking you’ve ever seen. I have said it before about other pictures but it has struck me anew seeing this one. He looks like he could be the devil’s own child.

I'm sure he did it on purpose. His plan is to pee on all traditions. Like Clinton, only worse.

He knows the lazy & apathetic MSM will say nothing around this.

I could easily imagine the howling, din, and liberal heads exploding if Bush behaved this way.

Could we have a worse leader?

I can not wait for November 2012.
